During the latest season of VH1's Couples Therapy, viewers have watched former Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis and girlfriend Nikki Ferrell struggle over how he expresses his affection. (Hint: He still hasn't said "I love you.")

But Jenn Berman, the no-nonsense psychotherapist behind the show, says they're coming along as a couple.

"Juan Pablo and Nikki have evolved through their therapy," she tells PEOPLE. "But there's more work to be done. There are some specific things about Juan Pablo that have caused him to hold back, but both he and Nikki open up more and more as they go through therapy."

Juan Pablo Galavis is used to public scrutiny of his relationships. When he was on The Bachelor, the former soccer player, 33, drew fire for declining to propose to girlfriend Nikki Ferrell at the end of the season.

Now appearing on Couples Therapy, he has taken a lot of heat for waiting to say "I love you" to Ferrell.

The backlash has been brutal – and not just for Galavis. After a recent episode, Twitter erupted with hateful tweets aimed at Ferrell, 27, calling her names for staying in the relationship. It got so overwhelming that Ferrell, who admits to being hurt by online chatter, suspended her Twitter account.

Despite the online drama, Galavis tells PEOPLE that he and Ferrell are still going strong. In an exclusive interview, he talks to PEOPLE about reality TV, Internet bullies, and why he hasn't said those three little words.

It was the first birthday they spent together.

Sometimes holding hands, sometimes kissing on the dance floor, Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis and girlfriend Nikki Ferrell were all smiles as they celebrated Galavis's 33rd birthday on Thursday at the Flamingo Theater Bar in Miami.

There was plenty of PDA as the couple – who ended up together (but not engaged) on Season 18 of the reality show – mingled with guests, including Galavis's father, Saul, and sister, Anna. Sipping on scotch, Galavis introduced Ferrell to many of his friends whom she had never before met.

Nikki Ferrell was quite pleased with last season's Bachelor finale. But last night's Bachelorette finale was a whole different story.

Ferrell, who was chosen by Juan Pablo Galavis at the end of The Bachelor's 18th season, blasted ABC producers Tuesday night on Twitter while watching the culmination of The Bachelorette – seemingly in reference, fans say, to Nick Viall's revelation that he'd slept with Andi Dorfman – and suggesting that producers pushed him to admit it.
